The last one having gone down at Cliff's hand in less than 13 minutes, here's one that's (maybe) a bit more obscure:

Who wrote this poem?

"We'll talk and screech madly through the night
in heated arguments about the Witch doctors of Africa
as versus
the Hindus of India and Voodoo men of the West Indies
We'll howl through eons
whilst Charlie Mingus puts it down...
Why doesn't the middle class put up?
because they've got their all holy standards warped!"

That's vintage 60's Pigpen...

I just happened to read that in A Long Strange Trip the other day.

And we have a winner, in...um...less than 10 minutes! That's it for me for the night. Congrats, Phlesh Wound!
